I think we all have at least ONE time where we tried something new and epically failed. We failed so bad it is now a hilarious story. Well, here’s mine.
It’s about about a day I dared to take a stand and attempt two courageous things and failed beautifully on both counts. It was messy. It was scary. It was funny. And, bottom line… it all worked out in the end.
And it always does.
Today is the day to reflect from these epic fails and instead of judging ourselves by saying “what was I thinking?” ask “what was I learning?” and how can I apply this learning moving forward.
As Maya Angelou says “When we know better, we DO better.”
Up until that point we really are just doing our best and my hope is that we stop the judgment and love ourselves knowing this.
So, What is one of YOUR epic and #FunnyFAILS that you get to laugh about now?
Bad perm? Stuck your foot in your mouth… or worse? Hilarity loves company so let’s get sharing! Comment below or tweet me @DaringToSuck and let’s have a good laugh!
Happy Friday and Much Love!
Loved this!! I’ve had many shitstorm moments too 🙂 and now I know that when things like this happen I need to go into the woods and hike or practice yoga to clear some space to be able to deal with it before I make anymore decisions. I also try to laugh quicker instead of hanging onto it for hours, days, weeks, months or even years before being able to look at it in a more humorous light!
That’s a great story – I don’t have a funny fail, but yesterday I was hurting from the Ottawa shooting. I had to opportunity to go to the Highway of Heroes and pay my respects to Cpl Cirrillo as he passed by. The convoy was late so I had some time to reflect. Your story made me feel better. Thanks K
Thank you for sharing Brett and yes, deep hurts and lots emotional chaos in the world right now. It’s times like this when we need to reach out and share our experiences so thank you of this. We don’t do anything BIG alone and that includes feeling. Shared pain, is halved pain my friend and sending you love and encouragement to keep sharing to connect us all through these moments. Together we stand xo
That is great Jules and I always find it fascinating how when I stop resisting my emotions, and dare to go head in – I find the humour WAY faster. Almost like my spirit rewards me for the courage to dive deep! Weird to say but that’s what it’s like for me too. I also find that there is a fine line between laughing and crying and go between the two sometimes seamlessly…LOL. Isn’t this life nuts?!!
